Okay we really want to go, but DW is a TA not associated with MEI, is it possible she could book ours and link with the group?

You're still welcome to join us for a majority of the group events and social hang outs.  There just will be a few events and perks not open to you.

Apparently I didn't respond to this one 🤔
I, along with my son again, will be there.

Booked with MEI, and a lot of pre-purchases already made.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Blackjack table again

Excited to cruise with some familiar faces again. 

Been too long, Ken!

@Matt couldn't even manage to get on a horse after that bar crawl.

I was just buying my first round of cruise planner items for this cruise, and was debating with myself if I should purchase the Deluxe Beverage package.  I am now Diamond with the 4 per day drink"tickets", as well as Prime in Casino Royale.

I know, silly for me to ask here.

Someone remind me how much shots of Patron are ala carte.

Hey @Matt (or anyone else for that matter) do you know if/when we may start seeing shore excursions for the stop in St Croix on this trip?  I logged into the RC cruise planner today and noticed that I hadn't booked anything for Labadee.   After booking the Amiga Island excursion at Labadee, I went to add a St Croix excursion and see nothing there.  🤔
Thanks....

Oh yea, Loved the Wonder of the seas Full ship tour.  Can't wait to do that one. 👍

I've been wanting to go on a "group" cruise, have never done one.  But, this one is right between our May 13th Ovations, Alaska cruise and our Nov 26th Harmony out of Ft. Lauderdale.  Can't afford 3 cruises in one year, maybe in mid-late 2023 if you have one.  But, we are looking to go on the Wonder in 2023 some time.

Just booked this one because of Kids Sail free without even realizing it was the group cruise.  This is going to be the third! cruise Matt and co will be on that we're on purely by coincidence.   We're also going on Mariner for the May 28th Bermuda cruise which will get us to Diamon, so two in a relatively short period on the same ship is new for us.  The July 17th one will be the first as Diamond members.   Last was Wonder of the Seas (2nd sailing00Ran into Matt at Adventure Ocean dropoff and wound up in the same elevator after), and Odyssey back in September.  But neither was a real "group" cruise.

Bar crawls and Slot Pulls are fun.  Wish I could go and convince someone to organize a slot pull and bar crawl.

Group Cruises usually end up having a bar crawl of some sort. Sometimes it is well organized in advance and other times it's just thrown together at the last minute and we meander thr ship together and terrorize atypical bars such as the one in the Windjammer.

I've never been on a "Group Cruise".  When I was a loyal cruiser to Brand X, I though of joining John Heald's (he's the face and voice of Brand X) but never got around to it.  Anyway, I'm looking seriously at joining in on a "Group Cruise" in mid-late 2023.  I'm considering Matt's, if he has one then, a "Slot Pull Group", or what ever.

Hi!  I've been a fan of RCBlog for years 😃.  Matt, your full ship video tour of Mariner is great.   My family will be on the Mariner on the July 17th cruise!  Random coincidence; we booked it a year ago, so we're not part of the "official" group, but I'd love to meet up or join in activities if possible.  Is there a way to do this or know what's going on if we're not part of the MEI Travel group?

A majority of the events are open to anyone. I never wanted to be the guy who said "you didn't book with my TA? We can't hang out"

There will be a few exclusive events to those that booked with MEI so there's an incentive to book with them, and a reward to those that support the group cruises by booking with MEI.

But you're absolutely welcome to join us for the non-exclusive events, of which 75-80% are not exclusive.

Matt - will there be some representatives of MEI Travel on board as well? I do currently have a TA but he may want to retire at some point and I am checking out other TA's to see if we are a fit. I have met one or two gentlemen who work with MEI but they told me at that time they did not really deal with Royal Caribbean. so would be interested in meeting some of the people who do work with Royal.
